Model Libraries

Model Libraries greatly extend the base capabilities of QualNet and EXata. All Libraries are available for sequential and parallel platforms.

  • Developer Library, included with QualNet Developer and EXata, for modeling a large variety of networks, including WANs, LANs, IPv6, abstract satellite, etc.,
  • Wireless Library, included with QualNet Developer and EXata, for 802.11a/b/g and mobile ad-hoc networks,
  • Multimedia and Enterprise Library, included with QualNet Developer and EXata, for modeling VOIP, queueing, scheduling, MPLS, and other Quality of Service capabilities,
  • Advanced Wireless Library for 802.16 and 802.16e, also known as WiMAX,
  • Sensor Networks Library for 802.15.4 networks, also known as Zigbee,
  • Cellular Library for modeling GSM cellular networks,
    UMTS Library for for third Generation (3G) mobile broadband networks,
  • Network Security Library for modeling networks with encryption, authentication, security keys, certificates, as well as attackers and eavesdroppers,
  • Standard Interfaces Library ** for integrating QualNet to a number of complementary simulators via HLA or DIS.
  • Satellite Library for modeling satellites and ground nodes.
  • Propagation Library: ALE/ASAPS‡ for modeling the ALE military radio and propagation effects
  • Propation Library: TIREM‡ for terrain and propagation effects based on the Terrain Integrated Rough Earth Model, and
  • Propation Library: Urban for urban and suburban pathloss and terrain effects.

** These libraries require code from a third party.
‡ These libraries are subject to export restriction under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) 22 CFR 120-130. International sales of these modules require authorization from the US Department of State.

Key Capabilities of SNT Models

  • Mobile ad-hoc network models enable modeling of existing installed network infrastructure from every major program, legacy or future, and protocol/device standard
  • Detailed wireless models including fading, signal-to-noise interference, path loss, terrain, modulation, mobility, and antennas allow modeling of highly detailed phenomena, such as the banking of an airplane and how it affects on-board routers
  • Terrain models including TIREM, DTED, and DEM means QualNet is able to source terrain from most COTS vendors including indoor, urban, suburban, and forested.
  • Detailed models with parameters such as signal power levels, data rates, routing protocols, antenna weighting, link scheduling, and scalability enable identification and correction of weak performance in specific network components
  • Quality of Service modeling capabilities for multimedia and mission-critical applications enables incremental “what if” scenario testing to identify specific conditions that threaten service level performance
  • Models for sensor networks, urban terrain, and directional antennas support new network-centric war doctrines and battle plans by matching conditions in specific battle fronts during the network design phase
